  • Question

  • Hi I have a question on Virtual Machine and Licenses if I have a 4 virtual machine Server 

    The network has 200 clients computer but 600 employees that share with the client computer.

    And I have a Windows Server 2008 R2 Enterprise. Server 1 has the Hyper-V server role and Microsoft System Center Virtual Machine Manager 2008 R2 installed. Server 1 also host the virtual machines configured following below.

    Server 1 has Microsoft Exchange Server 2010, 

    Server 2 has Microsoft SQL Server 2008 R2

    Server 3 has Active Directory Cerfiticate Services (AD CS)

    Server 4 has Active Directory Rights Management Services (AD RMS)

    I'm using device-base Windows Server 2008 R2 CALs the question is how many device-based Windows Server 2008 R2 CALs should I need to access all the Servers?

  • Hi,

    I confirm Daniel's answer that for your all Windows Server on your Domain, you Need oly to license your 200 device cals.

    CALs are licensed per product not per Server.

    thanks

  • Hi,

    You would need 200 to cover your client machines, CALs are per product not per server so a single device CAL allows that device to connect to as many 2008 R2 servers as it likes.
